We are waiting for numerous reason. We are wanting to buy a house, possibly get married and my oh is looking to change his career in the next couple of months so I would want him to be in that job for a year ideally. I don't mind waiting but I am getting slightly broody again
We are just waiting until DS 1 turns 2 and that way he will be out of nappies for baby no 2 coming along. We are also just about to start overpaying our mortgage by a decent amount every month so that by the time baby no 2 comes we may have enough equity in our house to move as we only have 2 bedrooms here.
We just pushed TTC for a bit over 2 years compared to our original TTC date in August. We are doing so for the following reasons:
1- Il be graduating in April 2013 and passing the bar in June of that year. I want to have time to work as a junior lawyer and gain experience before starting our family.
2- Although money was not an issue, it will put us in a better financial position if we wait.
3- We will be able to enjoy life not studying for a little while.
4- We will be going in Thailand this summer for two weeks and we plan on going to Mexico for three weeks in July 2013 to improve our skills in Spanish.
Edit: Forgot to add that I'm losing weight and I want to be a decent weight before we TTC so I can have the best pregnancy possible.
As with a lot of the ladies on here, we're waiting for mostly financial reasons.. I'm due to finish my degree next month and will hopefully find a job from that but will need to be working for a set amount of time to be entitled to maternity pay. As well as that, we've got some debt (a loan and an overdraft) that we'd like to clear.
We are waiting till May 13 because OH and I will be in a better place financially as well as finding somewhere to live. I've also got a girls holiday in September. And also want to have a spring/summer 14 baby
Waiting till we've had our first fabulous family holiday in the sun! We've got a lovely big villa in Cyprus with its own jaccuzzi and pool for a week...can't wait. I want to feel well and be able to drink nice cocktails etc...no morning sickness is going to ruin it for me- haha! Can't wait to go on holiday with our little man- it's gonna be great. And as soon as we're home we'll be trying for #2 to complete our family
We were just WTC to save a bit of spare cash so I can take time off work! We're in a situation where marriage and living together are not possible right now and we can't plan for them. However, we do have a very solid relationship so we're taking the plunge
Oh and I was waiting to graduate! I've been studying part time for the past 6 years and now I have plenty of free time for a little family
